We live in a fast-paced and changing world, where we need “enterprising citizens” who can act upon opportunities and ideas, manage dynamic careers, and shape the future for social, cultural, and economic good.

Are you excited to master an entrepreneurial skill set that you can use in every aspect of your life? Do you want to benefit from skills that will increase your human capital, employability, and personal development? Or are you interested in developing your ability to discover and create business opportunities?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, this course is for you.

By undertaking this course, you will develop and increase your “enterprising citizen” abilities to explore ideas and opportunities, develop your self-efficacy, resilience, and resourcefulness, and how to set goals/take action in uncertain circumstances. It will be of benefit/value to your personal development, the communities you live in and the organisations you want to work within or run.

We will be aligning this course to the EntreComp: Entrepreneurship Competence Framework.
